Collect of the Day

Guardian of the weak,

Turn the place we live

Into strongholds of your grace,

Temples of your presence,

And citadels of your justice,

So that the most vulnerable and most powerful

May find peace in the strong name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

 We Respond to God’s Word

Prayers of the People (Adapted from Susan Sayers)
If we are not ready to listen to the truth, we will not hear it.

Leader: God has drawn us down many different routes to this shared worship today. Let us still our bodies and alert our minds and hearts in his presence. Let us pray for St. Thomas the Apostle, Ottawa, The Ven. Peter Crosby, St. Thomas, Woodlawn, St. George’s, Fitzroy Harbour. The Rev. John Stopa, Interim Priest-in-Charge. We pray for John, our bishop, Arran, our priest. We pray for all clergy and people and their ministries in the Diocese of Ottawa.

People: Heavenly God, we are only the Body of Christ because your Spirit binds us together with your life. Give us real concern and love for one another, supportive and encouraging, without malice or bickering, so that we can be sent out strong in our weakness and littleness. (Silence)

Leader: Give us your grace:

People: to hear your word with joy.

Leader: Heavenly God, all the kingdoms and states are answerable to your authority, and much evil is allowed to flourish through the silence of good people; give us all the courage to speak out your truth, whether it is popular or not. (Silence)

Leader: Give us your grace:

People: to hear your word with joy.

Leader: Heavenly God, be in all our listening at home, on the phone at school and at work; may we give our full attention to you and to one another, happy to grow wiser through each conversation. (Silence)

Leader: Give us your grace:

People: to hear your word with joy.

Leader: Heavenly God, we pray for those whose pain screams silently and incessantly; for those who have no one to confide in, no one to listen. We pray for your love to enfold them, your peace to calm them and your healing to transform them. At this time, we pray for (insert names) and for those who we name silently or aloud. (Silence)

Leader: Give us your grace:

People: to hear your word with joy.

Leader: Heavenly God, prepare us all during this life for the life to come; we commend to your keeping all those who have recently made their journey through death. At this time, we pray for (insert names) and for those who we name silently or aloud.  (Silence)

Leader: Give us your grace:

People: to hear your word with joy.

Leader: Heavenly God, we thank you for making your ways known to us and guiding us into your truth.

Leader: Merciful God,
Accept these prayers for the sake of your Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.

We Celebrate the Presence of Jesus

The Communion


Anthem: Panis Angelicus by Gilles Leclerc


Le pain des anges est devenu le pain des hommes. Le pain du ciel a mis un terme a ses symboles. Ô miracle étonnant! Dieu se donne à manger aux pauvres, à l’esclave, aux petits. Nous t’en prions unique Dieu en trois personnes, daigne nous visiter car nous te célébrons. Conduis-nous au but où nous tendons, cette lumière où tu habites. Amen.


The bread of angels has become bread that feeds people. Bread of Heaven overwhelms all lesser symbols.

What a miracle! God becomes food for the poor, the slave, the humble. We beseech you, our one God in three persons, visit us as we celebrate your presence. Lead us into your light. Amen.


Prayer after Communion


Holy and blessed God,

as you give us the body and blood of your Son,

guide us with your Holy Spirit,

that we may honour you not only with our lips

but also in our lives.

This we ask in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.

PRAYER and PRAISE at ANDREW HAYDON PARK!   Come and join in a joyful celebration of the Eucharist on July 18 and August 15. The music starts at 7:00p.m. For more information, see the poster in Bender Hall or speak to Yvonne.


CROSSTALK: Do you have a special event or activity coming up at Trinity? Listing it in Crosstalk is a great way to get the word out to more people. The next issue is in September and the deadline for submissions is July 25th. You can submit your notice online at http/

SPECIAL VESTRY: At the June 19th Vestry meeting a motion was agreed upon: In consideration of the state of Trinity’s finances, it is moved to consult with the Bishop in a timely manner, the option of amalgamation for Trinity Ottawa. It was also agreed that a special Vestry be set for early October.


On June 25th members of corporation, synod representatives and Arran met with Bishop John Chapman to seek his counsel. He has encouraged us to speak to several churches in very broad terms. We are proposing some initial discussions between Trinity’s leaders and other churches in our geographic area. We will address the following: How do we most efficiently offer ministry in our geographic area of (old) Ottawa South; What efficiencies can be created by worshiping and sharing ministries; What are our Commonalities/differences.


Although these discussions move beyond the June 19th motion, we believe having this initial information will serve to inform the October Vestry creating opportunity for a fulsome discussion as we further investigate the possibility of Amalgamation. The wardens invite questions. We may not have answers. We ask for your prayers.
